If your Schlage Connect Programming Code isn’t working, the odds are you’re not entering the right Code or there’s a glitch in your lock. You can fix this problem by entering the correct Programming Code, or resetting your lock to factory default settings.

Well, the above explanation might not be enough—I get it. Let’s get into more details on how to fix the Schlage Connect Programming Code not working glitch.

Schlage Connect Programming code not working: How to fix the problem

1. Ensure You’re Entering the Right Programming Code

Schlage Connect Default Programming Code can be found on the back of the user manual, and the back of the Alarm Assembly—on a sticker. But it’s recommended that you change the default code, which you probably did.

So if you’ve previously changed the default Programming Code, you can’t use it to program your lock anymore. You must use the current code.

So you want to confirm that you’re entering the right code, otherwise, it won’t work—just like what you’re probably experiencing.

But assuming you’re certain that you are using the right code but still not working, then the odds are it’s a bug. You can fix the bug by following the next steps.

2. Reset Factory Settings to Fix the Problem

As mentioned, if you’re sure your Programming Code is correct, but still doesn’t work, then factory resetting the lock is your best bet.

Be aware that all user codes and any other changes to the lock programming will be erased/returned back to factory default settings. So you’ll have to reprogram the lock using the default Programming Code.

That said, here’s how to reset your Schlage lock:

  • Take off the battery cover and unplug the batteries.
  • Hold the Schlage button on the outside. Next, hold the Schlage buttress and reconnect the battery.
  • To complete the process, release the Schlage button.
  • So that’s how to reset a Schlage Connect Touchscreen Deadbolt. This should fix the Programming Code bug.

    It is important to test it to ensure that the reset went smoothly.

    You can do this by pressing the Schlage button and then enter one of the Default User Codes—to see if it unlocks the lock.

    Notification: Factory resetting the lock can also help you fix the problem if you’ve lost/don’t remember your current Programming Code.

    Now you can change your default Programming Code to a different one. And here’s how to change the default Programming Code and add new User Codes.
